Brantley Palms

5 posts in this topic

Bryant Brantley has some great deals on fields of Butia odorata palms. He has started venturing into other cold hardy palms as well. He gave me a great deal on a nice field dug trunking Trachyocarpus fortunei and threw in some extra potted palms as well. He was a genuinely nice guy who was a pleasure to do businesswith. He hand dug, wrapped, and tractor loaded my palm with a lot of expertise. ..almost no roots were cut in the process. He is located in Perry Florida on some nice farmland.

So far I've bought one palm from Bryant. It looked great, as described and he was quick to update me on shipment. As David said, he's widening his inventory and has quite some interesting plants for us cold hardy gardeners, including one hybrid palm which you most likely wont find anywhere else! I'll definitely be buying again, especially if more hybrids are included B)

Thank you! I am working hard on expanding my inventory and into more hybrids as well.

    • Trashy Spear Fully Pulled
      By PalmTreeDude
      Well... My Trachy spear pulled from the worst cold snap we have had here, the funny thing is my Butias, Mediterranean Fan Palm, and of course my Needle Palm are all thriving right now. I put most protection on the trachy and it is having the problem. The inner spear pulled but some fronds on the outside are green. Will it survive or is it likely dead?

    • Big Archontophoenix in Northern California

      Hello all, I saw this tree from the main road yesterday and had to Go back to Google to find it. It's pretty darn big and probably one of if not THE only Arch. in the city. They usually struggle and flounder up here. Winters in this area are just a bit too cold and wet and they just barely get going again by the end of summer.
      This picture is probably 3 or 4 years old and It's probably about 18' total height at this point. What's even more impressive to me is that this palm is on the NORTH side of the house so it's definitely seen some cold weather.
       
      I know, it's a pretty common item to all the folks south of here and in the western bay area (the "real" bay area) but it's unique out here. I think I'm going to ask if I can take some seed if it's available. Curious if this might be one of Inge Hoffman's "kids"?

       
      I sure hope they don't do like the La Quinta Coconut to this one....
    • At what age do Sabal palmetto flower/seed?
      By PalmatierMeg
      I've been wondering: at approximately what age or stage does Sabal palmetto start to seed?
      I've got a number of Sabal species growing on my lot, including maritima, causiarum, etonia, miamiensis, domingensis, minor bermudana, brazoria, guatemalensis and, of course, half a dozen palmettos, both normal and Lisas. A number of them, i.e., causiarum, domingensis, miamiensis, etonia, maritima, bermudana and minor, have been flowering/seeding for the past several years. And I remove their flower stalks each year so I'm not inundated with seeds.
      But even though my palmettos are among the oldest Sabals I have, not one has ever flowered. This year looks to be no different.
      So, I wonder, at what age/stage does a palmetto begin to flower and set seed? Do I have hope for that event in my lifetime?

      Not my photo but found on the web. This garden in West Seattle is famous for its Sabal etonia, S. causarium, and S. minor.
